Touch and the Untouchables will perform favorite Motown tunes.

The Four Tops, the Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, The O’Jays, The Jackson 5 — reverberations of Motown’s magical music of the 1960s and 70s will come alive at Wilmington College Feb. 28.

WC’s Issues and Artists Series will present the musical ensemble Touch at 7:30 p.m. in Hugh G. Heiland Theatre. The event is free of charge.

Five men from Dayton possessing a love of Motown’s golden age comprise Touch, which many consider as the premier tribute band performing the hits produced on the iconic Motown record label.

Touch and its backup band, The Untouchables, have been entertaining audiences across the country for more than 15 years, as their music evokes favorite memories of Baby Boomers and introduced classically American urban music to new generations of Motown lovers.

The group has shared center stage with the likes of Al Green, The Temptations, The Isley Brothers, The Spinners, Rick Springfield, Percy Sledge and the legendary Ray Charles.
